I've said this before, but I'm a woman who absolutely HATES those so-called "open kitchens" - who wants the dinner guests hanging around yakking at me when I'm trying to cook the dinner? Who wants the distraction of the TV blaring in the den during meal preparation? Who wants the detritus of a party meal piled in the dinner guests' line of vision  while they sip their after-dinner coffee? Give me a kitchen I can walk into and shut the door!

In my house,  we keep our home in working order by cleaning at least 1 hour a day, we have lots of time to laugh, enjoy each other and have fun. My husband keeps the heater,the electrical, plumbing and anything else needed to keep our home comfortable in working order and I help him do this as much as I can..We like space, so we keep our home uncluttered. My husband is a real man, he is not intimidated by my girly possessions and I am not intimidated by his manly possessions. Since we are not stuck on one type of flooring we have tile, carpet and wood floors. We give to each other from or full hearts so we both fill full of love for each other. YOU COULD SAY WE BOTH ENJOY OUR HOME NOT MATTER WHICH ROOM WE ARE IN.

Don't mean to sound sexist (but it IS still a sexist world), but the three most important things to me are (1) the kitchen, (2) the kitchen, and (3) the kitchen.

Hardwood is ugly and hard to walk on. I want full carpets everywhere except the bathroom. Anyone who claims all women want hardwood or tile dining rooms is a moron who doesn't know women. We're not all about cleaning, you know.

I think they missed the mark on a couple of things. First, I want a tub in the master bath, I don't take showers unless I absolutely have to, and second, I definitely do not want a jetted tub.

I think they missed the mark on this. What women really want in a house is a CLEAN HOUSE!!! Who wants to come home to cleaning up someone elses messes after a long day at work.

Don't forget nice soft floors, so when we're barefoot and pregnant at least we'll be comfortable...what a sexist article!

Most men would be perfectly content to live in a trailer in the woods, except then there would be no woman in his life.

yup these are things only a women would want. psht as a man i want dirt floor and a hole to poop in. none of that female 2 car garage, or ample closet space. feel free to keep your girly low maintanance too, i want my house on fire. all maintanance all the time. this article should be called obvious things people want in their home.

what planet are you from?  There are very few women that don't work outside the home these days as well as work in the home!  I have yet met any man that is a True partner in everyway. You need a reality check and maybe look at yourself, are you a true partner or are you a pick and choose kinda guy? I'll mow the lawn and trim the hedges but I don't do windows and toilets.

you    women    want all these  things   then maybe you  should buck and pay for them   rather than making    the man pay for it   all, and then wonder why he is dead tired    when he gets   home

 Women were telling us, 'It's like I'm coming home to a second job"  Don't their husbands/partners help with the laundry??

That's like every new home in Southern California! Eat an Almond Joy and be happy!  The layout that  I wanted also had a game room. With a sunken Living room and waterfall fireplace.. Dream a little...

I just want everything to be in working order. If I want a jetted tub, I can put one in later..which we are thinking of doing...I want my washer/dryer to WORK.  I don't need to feel like I am at club med while I am in there. SHEESH!!! But, I am rather low-maintenance and easy to please.

I'm female and almost none of them, except maybe for the last one, sound good.
